YSC - Young Scientists Club
The Young Scientists Club (YSC) was just recently founded by Kim Joana Westerich und Lara Marie Siebert-Kuss for PhD, medical and master students of our CRU and associates. Besides aiming at connecting with each other, the YSC wants to strengthen the visibility of young researchers in- and outside of the CRU. To this end, the YSC offers networking events in a casual environment to allow students to get to know each other, connect and exchange on a regular basis.
Stay tuned on our up-coming events and get-togethers at our website. If you don’t want to miss an event, feel free to contact Kim Joana Westerich or Lara Marie Siebert-Kuss and they will add you to the YSC mailing-list.
Training Programme of the CRU326
The CRU326 is committed to offer skills to their members necessary to conduct research projects at the highest level. Following this concept, we will establish an advanced training programme available to all CRU326 members and associates.
As a first step we succeeded to exclusively allocate three slots for participation for the seminar 'Biomedical Informatics: Practical programming for clinicians and biologists' organised by the IMI and held by Dr. Sarah Sandmann-Varghese. A certificate will be given to all participants. To register, please contact email@example.com. Registration is open until March 30, 2022. For further information click here.
Online Symposium 'Genetic Landscape of Reproductive Health' 2022
On November 30, we launched our new online workshop format revolving around the 'Genetic Landscape of Reproductive Health' organised by our CRU326! Renowned national as well as international experts were invited to present and discuss the underlying mechanisms of the changing genome and the impact of genetic alterations on germ cells, fertility and progeny health.
More than 120 participants from all over the world joined us to learn about genetic topics of Reproductive Health provided by 6 excellent speakers. The condensed format of the workshop of 4 hours offered highly informing presentations as well as fruitful conversations. We wrapped up the individual presentations with a roundtable discussion chaired by Csilla Krausz to bring together the diverse input from our speakers. Because of the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the audience we consider this workshop a tremendous success which prompted us to immediately start thinking about another workshop with a similar format on another topic for next year.
